ST MARY, Jamaica - The paediatric ward at the Annotto Bay hospiatl in St Mary is to be reopened next week after repairs. 

The ward was badly damaged during the passage of Hurricane Sandy in October last year.

Health Minister Fenton Ferguson today toured the facility as part of his effort to reach out to hospital staff traumatised by last night's killing of registered nurse Shellion Pinnock-Lafayette.

The repair bill for the ward was over $8 million.
